I'm a businesswoman in my mid-30s. I'm successful and have good legs. I love minis and have vowed never to let a skirt hem touch my knee.Now I see that long skirts are the big news for fall. I just want to know what designers are up to.Do they really expect modern women to wear these long heavy skirts?No designer expects women to change their hem lengths radically. Longer skirts are offered as an option -- an extra piece to play with.And long looks are not big news. Long dresses have been around now for several seasons.

BOSTON - Liberals, conservatives, anarchists, fundamentalists, peace-seekers and war supporters all found reason and space to protest in Boston this week - but peacefully, and in relatively small numbers. "From the get-go we had expectations of the worst and that hasn't happened," said David Estrada, a Boston police spokesman. "We've been very fortunate." Local, state and federal law enforcement officials convened on Boston with riot gear and crowd control training in anticipation of massive, rowdy protests.

Here are some tips that will help keep trick or treating safe:* Accompany small children or sketch 2 maps of the route kids will take; give one map to to the children, keep one at home. Make sure children stick to the route.* Visit only the homes of those you know.* Dress children in light colored or reflective clothing. Remove masks when crossing streets, or, better yet, create a face with makeup.* Hem costumes so small children won't trip.* Use the sidewalks, cross at intersections only.

A coat mistake is serious business.A bad choice of blouse can be ignored or covered up with a jacket or sweater, but there's no hiding a wrong coat.So think it over, over lunch or dinner, before you make the final decision and investment. Here, a checklist of reminders:* No coat is an island. Before you're swept away by romantic new designs, think about the rest of your wardrobe. The fashion-followers who can afford to change silhouettes with each season don't have to worry; they've already ditched their boxy blazers and shoulder pads in favor of a leaner line.

It could happen.You're at your desk when your stocking snags on an open desk drawer. As you bend over to inspect the damage, a button pops off your blouse. Scrabbling about on the carpet to retrieve the button, you get dust in your eye -- which starts to water, washing mascara down your cheek.It's a lot easier to deal with a minor grooming or dress crisis if you are somewhat prepared. That is, if somewhere in your office there is a drawer or closet stocked with such items as paper towels, cotton balls, safety pins, needle and thread, clear nail polish and makeup foundation or concealer.

Style is an elusive quality, easily recognized but defined only with great difficulty.Still, in years of observing the passing fashion parade, we have come to notice a few things about the art of stylish dress.We have noticed, for example, that the most stylish people do not always wear the most expensive clothes. Nor do the stylish mindlessly adopt every trend.Invariably, however, the stylish pay close attention to detail. They would no sooner be seen in sloppy sweats and dirty hair than they would run naked in the streets.

When store buyers sit down with a designer to place a season's order, they usually start the same place most women do: with a jacket.A jacket is a wardrobe's starting point, its backbone, the one piece around which everything else is built. And this season, it's also a fashion star.With softer lines and more natural shoulders, the latest jackets are light years from the severely tailored, turbo-padded power looks of autumns past. But the real news is length. From just brushing the fingertips to skimming almost to the knees, the long jacket is fall's most directional look.

Americans do two things wrong when they pack for a trip: They take 500 pounds of clothes, and they take the wrong clothes.They pay $2,000 for a trip, pack four suitcases, and then dress as if they're going out to cut the grass. Europeans make fun of us.One of the most pathetic sights I've ever seen in my travels was an American woman sitting next to three enormous suitcases outside the train station in Milan, Italy. She was crying; mascara was smeared across her face.The problem: She was a prisoner of her suitcases.

A key General Assembly committee handed Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. a bitter pill last night, asking him to keep budget growth next year to 4.37 percent, a figure that translates into deeper cuts than the Republican administration wanted. A meeting of the state Spending Affordability Committee was rife with intrigue, as Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller pushed for a far lower spending limit than House Speaker Michael E. Busch wanted. But both legislative branches were advocating a lower ceiling than the administration desired, leading a Republican senator to accuse ruling Democrats of intentionally boxing Ehrlich into a corner.

HARRINGTON, Del. - Mary Ellen Arbaugh of Taneytown held up a cherry pie she had baked from scratch and asked a small gathering what they thought. One man noticed the edge was crumbling in places. A woman pointed out the lattice top was not evenly spaced. When a slice was cut, another woman declared the crust too doughy, although the taste was good and not too tart. These were no ungracious guests. Arbaugh's audience was supposed to be critical. They were among 40 people who recently attended the Maryland Association of Agricultural Fairs and Shows' judging school at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington.

AMMAN, Jordan - About a month after American soldiers overthrew the government of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, Jamal Kamel, living near Baghdad University, got a call on his satellite phone from two relatives he never expected to hear from again. On the phone were his sisters-in-law, Raghad and Rana, who were also Hussein's eldest daughters. They were hiding, they were scared and they wanted to get out of the country. Hussein loyalists were after them because their husbands had defected to Jordan in 1995 before being lured back to Iraq and executed.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - As a hot afternoon faded into evening yesterday, Yasser Arafat left the confines of his battered compound with an aide and relaxed under a cool breeze. The 74-year-old Palestinian leader was dressed in his usual green fatigues and a checkered headdress. But for more than a year, the avid world traveler has rarely ventured farther than his parking lot. At that very moment yesterday, thousands of miles away, the man with whom Arafat uncomfortably shares power, Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas, was in Washington meeting with President Bush in the Oval Office discussing the Middle East peace plan.

"Who wears short shorts? We wear short shorts. They're such short shorts. We like short shorts." Don't expect to walk into an NBA locker room these days and hear the words to the Royal Teens' 1958 novelty hit "Short Shorts" blaring out of any boom boxes. Several star players, including Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and Tracy McGrady, have been fined $5,000 by the league's fashion police this season for wearing shorts that defy their definition by being too long. One player who won't get fined is Utah Jazz guard John Stockton, whose trunks put the "trunc" in truncated.

WRITING FROM NEW YORK -- I was at the most wonderfully chic, sophisticated, hot and trendy party here in the Fun Apple the other night. It was at ultra-campy, 1940-esque Supper Club, and I wasn't five minutes in the door when I saw a woman with toilet tissue stuck to the bottom of her shoe.A gentlemanly waiter kindly removed the toilet paper, whereupon the woman shook her head, rushed to the ladies room and emerged with another stuck firmly to her footgear.There were others as improbably improperly dressed: A man wearing too-short trousers, striped shirt, bright-checked sport coat, clashing red bow tie; a woman with exposed bra straps that looked like parachute straps.

IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED, GIRDLES are back! I've seen at least three articles now that insist they're back! And just days ago there was a half-page ad for "shapewear" in my newspaper. I had to laugh. You say shapewear, I don't picture the sleek, feminine-looking things shown in the ad. I remember the scary beige thing with little rubber threads poking out of it I used to find in the bottom of the clothes dryer.I'm in my late 20s now, so I came in as girdles were on the way out. Therefore, I have some questions about them, like: How exactly do they work?

IRISHTOWN, Prince Edward Island - Peter Lauwerijssen, 31, and his younger brother, John, muscled a wayward Holstein into position in the state-of-the-art milking parlor. The grunts of beast and men seemed incongruous among the high-tech fixtures of the huge new barn, but no amount of digital displays and stainless steel will ever remove the sweat entirely from farming. "See how we've taken to our new culture?" Peter boomed. "We swear at her in English as well as Dutch. But cows are very international - they will ignore you in every language."

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Antonio Freeman found himself in the lobby of a Green Bay hotel less than 16 hours before yesterday's kickoff with the Ravens discussing the return game with teammate Roell Preston.Preston, who already had returned two kickoffs for touchdowns this season, had yet to break a big one off a punt, and Freeman let him know it."I told him, 'You've done everything but break a punt,' " Freeman said. "And I told him about how everyone is hyping up Jermaine Lewis coming in here."And he was like, 'You know what, Free, I'm going to get one.' "It took all of 1 minute and 47 seconds for Preston to make good on his promise.
